please give me any input on these items, I do plan on eventually adding w/c to this setup once it can be afforded :thumb:
I don't know much about / give a crp about i7/i5 builds but here's my input:
NCIX.com - Buy Silverstone RV02B-W Raven 2 Black ATX Gaming Case 8X5.25 3X3.5INT 1X2.5INT No PS - RV02B-W In Canada.
Raven 2 is on sale, not sure if it's better than the original raven or not.
Good luck (: .
Bud I hope you're using Price Match option. Just the CPU you can get for $331.79 instead of $340.60. And do you really nead 3x WD Caviar Blacks 1TB ? Take that $100 and spend it on the case.
my current drives are a little older and are starting to crap out, my plan is to eventually have a NAS setup instead of having all that storage just in my one computer then anyone on the network can access the files.
which case would you suggest instead of the Raven? and yes I would be using the price match option or getting premier partner at NCIX.
originally I was going to go with a mountain mods case which I want later on when I go water cooling, just not sure how long till I go water cooling though as I have read that it can be a lengthy process till you get it right.
Seriously Vintank, really good build, have fun getting all these part together and post on workblog my friend!!!!
Ask for more.
Pretty good list, just change the case, that Raven isn't all that good, I would even get ab ugglier case like a HAF 932 before I get a Raven..
Even a Cosmos S is much better case..
(I know a lot can change by then but hey then I update my parts list)
as for the Raven case Miggs78, I like the uniqueness of it, just have to figure out how to change the LED light on the top from blue to red, watched/read some reviews on the case and I think it will be good, besides someone has to try it out right :P
but thanks for the suggestions
Nice build indeed....
I'd be tempted to try out the new Corsair Case (if you don't mind the weight of steel vs alum)
You'll have a blast with that Rig!!
that factor when looking at a case, I don't plan on moving it around much besides with a heavier case I can get a workout moving it around so no gym membership needed :bananafunky:
will definately have to put some more thought into the case now
